NAC versus Amoxycillin

I understand that both NAC and Amoxycillin open up and kill the EB form of Cpn.

 I started NAC last week at 500mg twice a day and after several days increased to 1000mg twice a day.

 Started with runny nose and cough within a couple of days and have been blowing my nose ever since.

Today i am WIPED, with headache, sore joints and sweaty.

To me this seems pretty conclusive as an NAC test.

 

But.....i have taken Amoxycillin in the past as part of my Lyme treatment, and have never had this kind of reaction....which I would have thought I should have had if I do have Cpn.

Do some people with Cpn react to one and not the other.....or should it be both? 

Interesting question Annelet. 

I have not take Amoxicillin with CAP so hopefully some that have or do will be able to comment for you.

Or perhaps some one with take a shot and theorize the question for you.

I take 500 mg of Amoxicillin bid every day for almost two years.  BUT...I also take Doxycycline, Azithromycline, Rifampin, and now, again, flagyl.  I would think that if you were only on Amoxicillin that you may not be hit.  With me, it is the comnbination.  What are you on now?  And I agree - you passed the NAC test!

Rica,

Hi, I am also taking Amoxicillin instead of NAC because I had diarrhea/gas on NAC. But now I am reconsidering because I read that NAC is so important.

If I try the NAC once more, should I stop the Amoxicillin. I guess it's obvious but who knows.

My doctor never mentioned Flagyl. Maybe that comes later.

Started CAP June 19, 2012 for MS. CPn 1:128. Igg not Iga. NAC. Doxycycline, and Nystatin daily. Azithromycin MWF. Starting Rifampin soon. Vatrax daily for EBV.

You're really getting there, kid.  Good protocol, I think.  Yes, NAC is very important - I take 2400 every day and 500 mg Amoxicillin bid.  And adding Rifampin - you're blowing this out of the water - as am I.  It really works! 

 I have NOTHING good EVER to say about any of the MS drugs and, from what I remember, this bug loves steroids.
